Hmmmm - how does that work?
If 40weeks is full term, thats 12 weeks from 7 months to 9 months??? 2 months lasts 8-9 weeks normally. Dang! I am 21 weeks in a few days, but I am still counting myself as 2 weeks away from 5 months. Does that mean I'm 5 months already?? ACK - my brain can't take this!!! LOL

You're actually pregnant for 10 months, not 9. (It's 9 WHOLE months.)

You enter the 9th month at 36 weeks when that 9th month is over at 40 weeks, you're actually entering your 10th month... but that's going by a lunar calendar. (Lunar calendar = 28 days, or 4 weeks, in a month.)

However, since we don't go by a lunar calender and there are actually an average of 4.3 weeks in a month, it evens out to 9 months in the long run... which is why we say we're X weeks pregnant rather than X months.

Have I confused everyone yet?

I am always confused LOL
So by that, 28 weeks is actually the start of month 7, not 7 months completed! I was thinking that they were already 7months pg, but are actually done 6mo, starting on 7.

Took me a while to get it but basically is this right??? lol
1-4 weeks is the start of a new life and at 4 weeks your 1 month
4-8 weeks at 8 weeks your officially 2 months
8-12 at 12 your 3 months
12-16 at 16 your 4 months
16-20 at 20 your 5 months
20-24 at 24 your 6 month
24-28 at 28 your 7 months
28-32 at 32 your 8 months
32-36 at 36 your 9 months
IT THE WHOLE 9 MONTH THING THAT KINDA CONFUSES US ALL!!

you'd think they'd start saying it was 10 months. I mean, really.

Like I said, it's only 10 months if you go by the lunar calendar, which we do not use in modern society... it's actually 9 months going by the Gregorian calender (which is what we use).

40 weeks / 4.33 = 9.24 months

My doctor said that medically this is how they count:

23 wks = 5 months
28 wks = 6 months
32 wks = 7 months
36 wks = 8 months
40 wks = 9 months

I don't know the counting before, as I was already 21 wks when she wrote it down for me. She told me to use this when I talk to hospitals or other health professionals when they ask me how far along I am and to stick it to the fridge
